we are now seeing come to pass. you might ronald reagan mentioned a bit here. he was famous for a lot of thingings including getting the big picture right, but he was a great negotiator and i rather 80 percent of the loaf than no loaf at all. he was a giver and a taker and he knew when to push his hand and when to fold his hand. is that the problem on both sides now? that they forget the gipper's basic approach to negotiating? someone gives and someone gets, everyone wins. after this. bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking.
